WFIU Public Radio and the Department of Jazz Studies are bringing a Jazz in July concert series to Bloomington. While the first concert took place July 6, performances will continue July 13, 20 and 27, each featuring a different band or artist. All concerts begin at 7 p.m. and are free to the public.

The concert on July 6 took place at the Conrad Prebys Amphitheater, with a performance by the Al Cobine Big Band. The band’s original leader, Al Cobine, who died in 2009, once put together orchestras and arrangements for performers such as Elvis Presley and Johnny Mathis.

The July 13 concert, also at the Conrad Prebys Amphitheater, will present Joe Galvin Latin Jazz Octet: Soneros de la Caliza. Galvin is the director of IU’s Latin American Ensemble.

The Charlie Ballantine Quartet will perform July 20 at the School of Global and International Studies Building lawn. Attendees may bring a chair or blanket.

On July 27, at the Conrad Prebys Amphitheater, the Heartland Trio and Kathryn Sherman will perform. Sherman is a vocalist, arranger and educator based in Bloomington, and was vocalist for ExWo, a neo-soul band, and Giraffe House, a math rock band.

In the event of rain, concerts will be moved to Musical Arts Center 066.
